US 31 Plymouth to South Bend to open Thursday

PLYMOUTH – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announced today that the New U.S. 31 between South Bend and Plymouth opens to traffic Thursday, Aug. 21.

Some restrictions will remain on the north end of the project near South Bend and the south end near Plymouth through the end of the year as construction continues.

The new U.S. 31 is 20 miles of divided, four-lane highway between the U.S. 20 Bypass in South Bend and U.S. 30 near Plymouth.

In between, traffic will only be able to access the new alignment by way of entrance and exit ramps. Three interchanges will open this Thursday: Kern Road (South Bend), State Road 4 (Lakeville) and U.S. 6 (LaPaz).

A fourth interchange at 7th Road near Plymouth is under construction and will open to traffic by the end of 2014.

Details regarding the opening are pending. Check tomorrow's Pilot News for more information.
